She may have been at home convalescing for two months, but tonight Sue Simmons is really home.
The veteran anchor is back on WNBC with Chuck Scarborough at 11 p.m. She missed the last eight weeks due to back surgery. In a taped segment airing on a Christmas weekend newscast, Scarborough visited his longtime professional partner. Simmons, after some minor prodding, showed the scar on the back of her neck.
Scarborough and Simmons, both 67, are, by far, the longest tenured on-air team in New York–together since 1980.
